As many of you know, we have been keen supporters of Xero since the early days of Enkel. This week we were announced as Xero’s first Gold Partner in Western Canada, which is a huge milestone for our team. At the beginning of the year we made it our goal to become Xero Gold Partners, and now at the end of the year, we are proud to say that this goal has been achieved! This milestone articulates our commitment to helping businesses in the West migrate to Xero and to embrace the cloud.
As you can tell, we are delighted by this news! You may be wondering what becoming a Xero Gold Partner really means.
Long story short, Xero has created a points system that determines the status of a firm's account. As more clients use Xero, the firm generates more points. For Gold status, a firm would need 300+ points, and more importantly, a Xero-Certified staff. With the great support from the Xero education and training crew, the Enkel team is completely certified and experienced when it comes to the intricacies of the application, and how to best use the tool to support a business’ needs.
Why are we so excited?
As mentioned, we have been keen supporters of the Xero application since we launched our firm in January 2016, and have been able to work closely with the Xero team on a number of projects and events. With Xero’s increased presence out West, Enkel will continue to embrace and promote the Xero movement.
So what’s next? Our team will continue to offer an amazing bookkeeping service to businesses in Western Canada . We are also launching a new service line - a customized Xero training course for small business owners who want to learn bookkeeping fundamentals and processes. This is an ideal way for business owners to learn how to keep top of their finances. Keep in touch, and as always, let us know if you need a hand with your Xero questions!
